  • DVD X Copy Ordered Off The Market

    I'm sure some of you guys use this, I do, it works brilliantly. I knew sooner or later it would get canned. We'll see where it goes from here...peace


    Judge sides with the studios, agrees that the DVD copying software violates DMCA.

    February 20, 2004 - A Federal court has ordered 321 Studios to stop making and selling DVD X Copy, its DVD copying software tool that would allow a personal computer owner to make perfect copies of a DVD.


    "This court enjoins plaintiff 321 Studios from manufacturing, distributing, or otherwise trafficking" in the software, Judge Susan Illston of U.S. District Court in San Francisco, wrote in her ruling, issued Friday afternoon. Illston has given 321 one week to stop selling its DVD copying software.

    321 plans to appeal the case and as part of its appeal, the company said it would seek to stay the ruling so it can continue selling its software, which comes in three different versions and is sold through major retailers like CompUSA.

    The studios and their trade group, The Motion Picture Association of America, which spearheads studio anti-piracy efforts, sued 321 under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which protects copyright holders from illegal copying of movies, music, books and TV shows.

    321 Studios had argued its software protected DVD owners because it gave them the ability to make copies in case their original DVDs were destroyed. The studios had countered that 321's software circumvented the CSS encryption codes that protected the DVDs from being copied and therefore violated the DMCA.

    Illston agreed with the studios. "It is the technology itself at issue, not the uses to which the copyrighted material may be put," she wrote in her ruling.

    DVD X Copy is a powerful program, capable of making a perfect duplication of a DVD movie, and its more advanced versions, like DVD X Copy Platinum, allow you to copy only the movie and omit the extras on the disc. To make a dual layer movie fit onto a single layer DVD-R or DVD+R disc, DVD X Copy can compress the video down to fit on the blank media.

    An MPAA attorney told Reuters that after the appeal, the MPAA would seek damages against 321, which could include all of 321's profits.
